timber veneer

What is Timber Veneer?

A timber veneer is a decorative panel which is a thin layer, finely slices from a large wood block at an average thickness of 0.6mm.

Timber veneers are generally pressed onto a core substrate material such a E0 MR MDF. Reconstructed timber veneers are derived from natural wood veneers which are sliced and dyed to the colour desired by manufacturer, then re-glued in a block mould to create a consistent grain pattern. The blocks are then cut into layon thickness to result in a curated and unique range of reconstructed timber veneers.

Benefits of Reconstructed Timber Veneers
  • Consecutive colour and grain pattern achieved with the manipulated of the reconstruction process of the timber veneers.
  • A diverse range of colours and grains can be available.
  • Ease of batch match and replacement of sheets
  • Natural textures and tones used to tailor into every aesthetic.
  • The warmth of a timber veneer can add an element of softness within every project.
  • Flexibility of substrate choice and application to achieve numerous design possibilities.
  • Matching edging made from the timber veneer to ensure exact match.
  • New Age Veneers supply the timber veneer raw pressed onto substrate to customise the gloss finish desired.

Patterns of Reconstructed Timber Veneers

– The distinctive grain appearance in timber veneer is a result of slicing through the growth rings of a tree.A reconstructed veneer may display natural features such as pinknots, gum, and mild indentations. These are not classed as defectsbut purely intrinsic features of the wood veneer and its processing. The angleat which the wood is sliced determines the unique visual characteristics of each veneer. Below are descriptions ofthe most common timber veneer cuts and grain patterns available:

Rotary Cut

Rotary Cut

This cut involves peeling a log or trunk of a tree in a continuous motion. Itproduces a wide and repeating grain pattern with natural variations.Rotary cut veneers often showcase prominent cathedrals, creating awarm and traditional aesthetic.

Quarter Cut

Quarter Cut

Quarter Cut In this method, the log is first quartered and then sliced perpendicular to the growth rings. Quarter cut veneers display straight grain patterns with an appealing straight and uniform appearance. They are popular for their elegant and timeless appeal.

Rift Cut

Rift Cut

Rift cut veneers are obtained by cutting the log at a slight angle to thegrowth rings. This cut produces a linear grain pattern with minimal figureor cathedrals. Rift cut veneers offer a contemporary and sophisticatedlook, often sought after for modern interior designs.

Crown Cut

Crown Cut

Also known as "flat cut" or "plain sliced," crown cut veneers are obtainedby slicing the log parallel to the growth rings. This method produces agrain pattern that showcases the natural characteristics of the wood, including cathedrals, curls, and flame-like figures. Crown cut veneers areversatile and widely used, offering a classic and traditional aesthetic.

Timber Veneer Australia distribution

New Age Veneers has in house manufacturing site located within Sydney. We can produce high-quality on-board products pressed onto various substrates such as E0 MR MDF, FR MDF, and additional specialties substrates. We can distribute nation wide within Australia and are proudly. We have a quick sped to market turn around to ensure you receive your pressed timber veneers efficiently and effectively.

Specification of our reconstructed timber veneers:

When placing an order for our reconstructed timber veneers, please specify the desired board size as well as thickness.

Good 1 Side (G1S)

When specify a G1S board this is provided with a BAMO (Backing at Manufacturers Option) which is generally a downgraded plantation oak or a similar toned downgrade veneer. This option is used for applications where the backing is not noticeable or seen such as cabinetry door fronts, wall panelling & internal shelving. Please note this specification of the veneers is completely determined by the manufacturers backing availability at time of order.

Good 2 Sides (G2S)

With a G2S specification this provided the selected veneer pressed onto both sides of the substrate of choice. This ensures a A/A grade sheets is provided and consistency with front & back timber veneers. G2S specification is used in applications where both sides are seen, used in high-quality doors, shelving and panelling installations.

Colour Consistency with Reconstructed Timber Veneers

Although NAVENEER™ is a reconstructed timber veneer, it retainssimilar colour and grain characteristics to natural timbers. As a result,subtle grain differences may be visible between block lots. Colourvariation of ±10% may also be evident between block lots due to batchdyeing. Just like natural timber, it is impossible to guarantee completecolour consistency between production blocks. Prolonged exposure toexcessive sunlight may cause timber veneers to undergo sudden andirregular colour changes and is therefore not recommended.

New Age Veneers Reconstructed Timber Veneers available:

New Age Veneers supplies the NAVENEER range of veneers. This range is made up of reconstructed timber veneers made from rotary peeled timber that is colour enhanced through a dyeing process. Reconstructed veneers are consistent in colour and pattern batch to batch.Our extensive industry research has resulted in the development of dyeing systems based on water cycles. The dyeing process is used to obtain the required colour shades for each sheet of veneer. Wood veneers are impregnated by immersion into steel tanks at controlled temperatures with the addition of soluble dyes made from an organic structure. The dyes contain no chrome or other heavy metals.NAVENEER is suitable for use as feature wall and ceiling linings, joinery, furniture, doors, as well as acoustic panelling.

We also supply a NAVLAM range which consistent of pre-finished reconstructed timber veneers with a sandblasted texture finish. NAVLAM Sandblasted is a range of textured reconstructed timber veneers, finished with high quality, scratch and stain resistant 2-pac acrylic polyurethane finish and laid on a laminate back. The sandblasted texture is created through a wire brushing process to give a unique textural surface. NAVLAM Sandblasted is available as a finished panel on E0 MR MDF substrate thickness of your choice.
